Discussion for Zechariah 4:9

  • Enid Rwanda for verse 9
    Today, many saints that are called to do the work of God are despised and discouraged by the society and even fellow saints. We may look at some as not perfect enough to minister the things of God to others. Many at times we have despised those operating in the five fold ministries hence the power of God not witnessed manisfeting in the Church. We at times expect those with annointing not ot be earlthly ie not to have any room for weakness. But the Zechariah 4 teaches that we should recognise the hand of God working in those He hsa called for they are first humans but wearing the righteaosness of Christ Jesus as seen in Joshua being adorned in another garment.
